Abstract:
The legal system in India has evolved from a very raw and arbitrary form to a more tuned and refined system. It is not just the many new laws and acts that have been coming up in the recent trends, but there are many bodies that have been developing to solve disputes outside the court. One such alternative is Mediation. It is one of the most convenient forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution which could be used to dodge delay and extra unfair costs. Though Mediation is distinctively advantageous, it is under-used and not given enough importance. India is seeing recent trends in the rise in use of ADR, especially mediation for solving disputes. With our country's rising population and increasing cases in courts, it is best to resort to such alternatives at this hour because they are more time and cost effective and they definitely help in reducing the burden of timed-out cases in our courts and ultimately help in reducing judicial delay. This article essentially focuses on what is mediation, how it works, the laws governing mediation in India, and finally concludes by critically analysing the scope of mediation in India and how it can be used for speedy judgments and helping our legal system evolve towards a better, effective and a prospective direction.
